Learn at GPY

Here we outline upcoming opportunities to learn something new. We offer small group classes and events.

We offer classes for all skill levels: novices; beginner; intrepid beginner, intermediate and advanced. See our current class schedule below.

Although not classes, we also offer Knit-alongs (KALs) and Crochet-alongs (CALs), they are led by GPY staffers and feature contemporary, fun projects. Participants join in to work on the featured projects together which offers great opportunities to learn from each other and exchange ideas, plus interesting conversation. There is a $10 participation fee for each KAL and CAL series.  However, if you use GPY yarn for the KAL project, your $10 participation fee will be credited to your in-store account for a future purchase.  And if you want to use yarn you purchased elsewhere, no problem, your participation fee helps support GPY KALs and CALs. We recommend that participants have advanced beginner skills to join KALs and CALs.

Check the Calendar page for a complete schedule of events, classes, and workshops.
